A total of 168 mothers of children hospitalized in different wards of Tabriz children hospital were recruited by convenience sampling. Data was collected by Newcastle Satisfaction with Nursing Scales (NSNS) and analyzed by Regression coefficient, Pearson correlation coefficient, and T test using SPSS-PC (v. 11).

  Results: The mean score of mothersoverall satisfaction was 74.77±18.65. The items with lowest level of satisfaction were “nurses’ helping to calm and assure the parents and relatives”, “the kind of information given by nurses to the mothers”, and “nurses rapidity when they were called by mothers” respectively. Mothers were most satisfied with nurses’ helpfulness (4.41 ± 0.81). Motherssatisfaction was not significantly correlated to their age, level of education, job, Childs' gender, age, number of hospitalizations, and health status at the time of discharge (P> 0.05).
